C & C Technologies completed BP's Angola Block 31 AUV survey on October 17, 2005.The hazard survey encompassed over 4300 line kilometers and was completed with C & C's C-Survey I
™ AUV. Upon completion of this survey, the C-Surveyor I
, aboard the R/V Rig Supporter
, began a pipeline survey in the West Africa region.
C & C's second deepwater AUV, C-Surveyor II
™, was delivered to their Lafayette, LA office in June 2005. After several months of integrating proprietary hardware and software, the AUV was mobilized on the R/V Northern Resolution
. Presently, the C-Surveyor II
is completing field operations in the Gulf of Mexico. Thomas Chance, President of C & C Technologies, Inc., commented, “It was a difficult time during this integration period. We had decided to change the traditional body design and incorporate new sensors to provide higher quality data. As with most reengineering projects, problems did arise, but our experienced AUV team quickly resolved the issues."
